Secret Service & prostitution

2012-04-18 14:29:57.758011+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

So there's this thing where the U.S. Secret Service was down in Columbia prepping for a Presidential visit, and a prostitution scandal erupted. Long-time readers of Flutterby know I'm not particularly averse to prostitution, relationships have many transactional components and I think heavy restraints on trade tend to bias the playing field, in the case of prostitution those restrictions tend to bias against women.

So here's what bugs me: There was a $25 charge for the additional room. The scandal apparently erupted because two of these assholes were looking for a "2 for the price of 1" deal, in the range of $40-50.

What bothers me, of course, is that a couple of douchebag cheapskates were balking at paying the provider of the services less than twice the additional room charge. I mean, maybe they could expense the room charge, but... yeesh.

That our president's security and our nations reputation is so dependant upon people with such bad decision making skills is the real issue. The risk/value assessment involved in stiffing a working girl for less than $60 USD is insane, let alone that 11 of the agents had a similar "guest" that night.
